Export Certificate Workshop

Date: April 24-25, 2012
Location: Greenbelt, Maryland

The PTIN Export Certification Workshop was held on April 24-25 in Greenbelt, Maryland. This workshop built on outcomes from an FSCF PTIN Export Certification Roundtable held in February 2010 in Australia on the margins of Codex CCFICS meetings where best practices for the appropriate use of export certificates were identified. The working group discussed Codex guidance and use of Codex model certificates, discussed criteria for determining when a food or agricultural certificate should or should not be required, discussed appropriate use of export certificate attestations and encouraged use of electronic certificates.
